Need a Lift?

We had a customer this week that had a unique situation. He had a two car garage with two single garage doors.  He has three cars.

He came up with a brilliant idea to install a lift on one side of the garage.  That way he could pull one car in the garage, lift it up and pull the other car underneath it.

He ran into a problem after the lift was installed.  He couldn’t lift the car all the way up because of the overhead door.

He called us to get a quote on adding 12″ of high lift. We gave him a quote on the high lift as well as  a Liftmaster 3800. He has to use a jackshaft opener because a traditional trolley type opener won’t work due to the high lift.  He’s better off with the jackshaft opener anyway. It has more bells and whistles and it is much quieter.

He liked the quote so we scheduled it and got it done. What a great set up this is! It’s so quiet and clean looking. He could go ahead and do it to the other door also so it looks uniform on the inside. However, this didn’t change the appearance of the outside at all.

Here is a before and after picture from inside the garage.

Before and After High Lift


Residential Jackshaft Opener

Finally a residential  jackshaft garage door opener that is totally reliable.  LiftMaster thought of everything when making this opener.  This garage door opener is the top of the line.

Where do I begin?  Let me start with the back lit wall control which has a digital display that rotates time and temperature.  It has a motion sensor that automatically turns on the opener light when you enter the garage at any time.  You can also turn the motion sensor off and use the light manually.

On to the remote control.  The remote that goes in the car has three buttons for operating up to three devices.  The remote buttons are lit for night time operation.  It has a proximity switch that allows the remote to light up when your fingers get near it.  This is a really convenient and cool feature.

This jackshaft garage door opener has a dead bolt that automatically locks and unlocks with every use.  You can visibly see and hear the deadbolt lock when your door shuts all the way.

This garage door opener has all the safety features that the other models have and more.  There are lots of benefits to having this opener such as less wear on the top of your garage door.  This opener doesn’t lift your door from the top so it doesn’t ever bend the top section of your door.  The jackshaft opener mounts directly to the torsion tube.  You have all of that extra headroom because this opener doesn’t hang in the middle of your garage ceiling.  That’s another benefit.

The jackshaft opener is one of the quietest garage door openers I have ever heard.  It has a DC motor so it is super quiet.  It plugs into a regular 120v outlet.  It also has an optional battery backup for when the power goes out.

This is a great opener for your garage as well as for the door in your shop.  It will lift a door that is up to 14′ tall.  If there are obstructions above your door that won’t allow for regular garage door opener installation, this is perfect for those low headroom situations. 

There are a million applications for this opener.  It rates 10 out of 10 on our scale.  We have them in stock and available for installation.  Call us for a price and get yours today.
